Mission Viejo

Editorial Opinion

Vote To Protect Your Neighborhood!

By Steve Magdziak

Responsible leadership on the Mission Viejo City Council could resolve problems created by the incumbents seeking re-election:  

  •  Traffic congestion and parking issues the current council “cannot” fix.
  •  The threat of more housing development – look at the mess  on Oso!
  •  Mission Viejo’s fall to #13 among California’s safest cities.

We have solid evidence of the city council’s incompetence and their irresponsible votes – despite their campaign claims of preserving Mission Viejo’s quality of life. Incumbents Rhonda Reardon and Dave Leckness are sending out slick mailers, paid for by a labor union using the name “Citizens to Protect Mission Viejo”. Why is a union backing self-proclaimed “conservatives” Reardon, Leckness and housing lobbyist Wendy Bucknum?

Will you now take action by mailing in your absentee ballot or by going to your polling place on Election Day? Do not vote for Reardon and Leckness or Bucknum!
Pro-developer incumbent Rhonda Reardon also wants to pass a city law to punish minor children for e-cig possession – a $1,000 fine and up to six months IN JAIL with a misdemeanor conviction on their record with the FBI. Passing such a law takes away parents’ rights and can harm your child's life forever.
Watch Dave Leckness boast about traffic on Oso Parkway and the “luxury apartments” in this video: (type into your computer address bar: http://tinyurl.com/qefrg4k). I guess “luxury” means high-density housing, traffic, overcrowded schools and subsidized housing (paid with your local taxes) for applicants who take all-expense paid vacations to Bali (see: http://tinyurl.com/q9sanec).

Lobbyist Wendy Bucknum is bought and paid for by special interests as well as a labor union – the worst of all eight council candidates. She’s a VP of a property management company, PCM. Their business has a monetary interest in adding more housing – and more traffic – to Mission Viejo. A council seat would be a conflict of interest for her. People might be acquainted with her, but they don’t know she’s a lobbyist: (see: http://tinyurl.com/l6stn2d).

On Nov. 4, Reardon, Leckness and Bucknum should not get even one vote from neighborhoods that have already been changed forever with more high-density housing.

On Election Day, I will vote for Ed Sachs, Desi Kiss and Greg Raths. They are not pro-developer or pro-special interest. Please know the candidates before you vote: (see: http://tinyurl.com/kdkd2vn).
